At Marbecks Foodstore, a space that triples as a café, deli and specialty grocery store, the shelves are stocked with a huge variety of nationally and internationally sourced specialty food products. There’s everything from essentials like Maldon sea salt and high-quality olive oils to locally produced Otago Chocolate Company chocolate, Wellington-made Fix and Fogg peanut butter and a select range of Mexican, Asian and Italian cooking products. The store also offers a beautiful selection of kitchenware.

Booze is available to browse here too. There’s a small but well-curated selection of predominantly Central Otago wine, as well as craft beer sold from the tap so that you can fill your own rigger, or your jam jar if you’re simply after a taste of a new brew. Unsurprisingly, local stalwarts Emerson’s dominate the craft beer tap offerings.

Expect a deli well stocked with cured meats and cheese sold by the weight, olives, sundried tomatoes and the like. There’s fresh bread, of course, making this perhaps one of the best places in town to gather goodies for an antipasto platter.

The café makes use of many of the ingredients that feature in the grocery space in its cabinet and menu offerings. Coffee is made using Supreme beans and tea is by Harney and Sons; beans and leaves are available to take home as well. For those who love cooking and eating, this is a Dunedin must-visit.
